    I hate the winter. But this is my favorite week of the year. Eight months ahead of baseball! And being a Mets fanatic this year promises to be extra fun!

    Here's some ballpark shots I've taken through the years to get everyone dreaming about spending a day at the ballpark on a warm summer day.

    Shea Stadium with the new stadium going up in the outfield parking lot..

    Citi Field, NY

    Citizens Bank Park, Philly. The stadium is nice. The fans are trash.

    PNC Park, Pittsburgh. A very pretty town. Who knew?

    Nationals Park, Washington DC

    [​IMG]


    Fenway Park, Boston. A genuine baseball cathedral.

    2013 All Star Game at Citi Field

    In November 2013 my best friend, who I had been going to games with for 30+ years, suddenly passed away from a heart attack. I haven't been to a game since, I wasn't "ready". I think this year I will go back, reflect, and honor the 2015 National League Champs!

    1. I'm also very psyched that baseball is getting rolling this week. It's damn cold here in Boston and I need something to remind me that this shit on the ground WILL eventually melt away.

    2. The Mets balloon will certainly come back to Earth this year and I think that they will find themselves quite comfortably nestled into 3rd place in the NL East.

    went to citi on the 4th weekend

    they beat the reds
    Santana pitched a nice game and got a homer (his first)

    it was hotter than fuck
    and we ate at some peurto rican type place near the ballpark
    and I got super drunk

    a good time was had

    I live 1.5 miles from Coors Field and I love going to the park and enjoying a cold brew in the Rocky Mountain air.

    Wednesday for Mets pitchers and catchers.


    And I still like Shea better than Citi.

    This is the only Home of the Mets (and Jets for that matter) I grew up three blocks away and lived there as a youth. Citi Field Can suck a dick.

    I'll call my shot right now. Padres will win 76 games this season.

    MLB needs to either shorten their regular season and/or push it 2/3 weeks later. I ain't even thinking about it or looking at this shit till the NBA Finals are over.

    I can't believe they can still sustain 162 games anymore with how little the younger generation cares about it now.

    Baseball in NYC at night in late March and early April at 35 degrees is ridiculous. Unless those cheap fan raping fucks got a retractable roof with all that Yankees $15 beer revenue - there's NOTHING fun or practical about that.
